Eli Vanezis – Salon Manager / Senior Stylist

I have been working in several London prestigious salons for the past 14 years as a hair stylist and enjoy my job with a passion as I always strive for perfect results and finishes.

I take immense pride in cutting, colouring and styling. I have substantial knowledge of Organic, Aveda, L’Oreal and Wella products.

Hairdressing isn’t just a job for me; it’s a passion.

Izzi Godley

Hi, my name is Izzi. I’m fifteen and currently in secondary education. I work at VK on saturdays and have spent my week of work experience with the rest of the team.

I’ve always loved hairdressing and it’s become a secret passion of mine (- I’m constantly asked by the girls at school if I can do their hair before lessons!) Hair Ups and braids are my speciality and I’m learning so much from the team and my knowledge of the hair and beauty world expands by miles every time I go to work. I’m hoping to go on to do Hair and Beauty Therapy as well as psychology and sociology A-Levels.

The friendly, family atmosphere has helped me to settle in straight away and I love working there! I’m looking forward to seeing you on Saturdays!
